Police has done it again..
Another called up by them for “illegal assembly” for TBT’s campaign on National Day..
This time, a Indian Policeman came..told me there is a letter for me and make a quick exit before I can even take a close look at him..(oh..my sweet boy manage to call out “bye bye uncle” before he dash into the lift)..No identification on him stating he is a policeman..he was not in police uniform..he did not identified himself as policeman..so who is he?
The sad state of our policemen..which lead me to think;
1) are they getting ashamed of what they are doing to their fellow citizens?
2) are they no longer proud of donning their uniforms?
3) or perhaps they are phasing out their blue uniforms and changing to white to represent the party they are protecting?
On the hindsight..judging from their behavior on the day itself, 2 plain clothes policemen approach us, 1 make a statement, while the other started aiming the camera at everyone of us..(believe me, the way the police videographer did was no class..police intimidation at their ultimate)..
The policeman identified himself and cited illegal assembly as an excuse to ask us to disperse. We cooperated, and started packing up while getting ourselves organize for a group photo taking. Of course the police videographer was all too glad to capture our group photo taking as well..We were so cooperative that we even make their job easier by having our pictures taken in a group for their easy identifications / reference later (haha)..
I was at the first TBT campaign in Toa Payoh on May Day..police at that time says it’s ok..we are not doing anything illegal..subsequent TBT campaign from Toa Payoh to Bishan (I think about 3-4 times), which I did not attend due to my family commitment, police didn’t come ‘kajiao’..so what makes the rest ok and on National day not ok for the police? It will be interesting to hear their answer (if they have any..)
No wonder Mas Selamat was let off easily, our police rather spend unnecessary resources on us than trying to catch the real criminals out there.. Our citizens lives are compromise by the police who definitely misplace their priorties..
